Children, adorable dogs, fancy vacations: social media today is overflowing with smiling friends, “best life” advice, and endorsements for a wide variety of beauty and health products. But before you buy that magic cream, or use a Groupon for a chemical peel, consider instead calling someone who can revive your appearance to its natural healthy function. Your skin deserves the best quality care it can receive; to see your best skin rejuvenation results, call Rotemberg Plastic Surgery .
When you come to Rotemberg Plastic Surgery, we will take great care to assess and address the specific needs of your unique skin. Dr. Silvia Rotemberg’s years of experience have enabled her to study and compare a wide variety of skincare solutions. The services offered at Rotemberg Plastic Surgery patients must meet a high criteria, based on the efficiency, results, and overall treatment experience of a procedure. One skin rejuvenation solution, in particular, stands out to Dr. Silvia Rotemberg, her patients, and celebrities alike: Microneedling.
Microneedling, or Collagen Induction Therapy, has the ability to not only smooth wrinkles, heal scars, and shrink pores, but to also add youthful volume and a healthy glow to your skin. You will see major improvements in your skin after only one microneedling session; patients who complete three to four microneedling treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, see an almost complete transformation in their skin.
What is Microneedling?
As the name suggests, Microneedling involves the quick insertion of a group of extremely fine needles into the patients’ dermis. While microneedling is sometimes performed with take-home dermal roller, professional-quality applicator pens provide the best results. Dr. Silvia Rotemberg performs Microneedling with SkinPen, the only FDA-approved microneedling pen. The pen contains 11 thin needles, which quickly pierce and then withdraw from the skin. The pen is designed to penetrate to an even, controlled depth, in order to achieve the desired results and stimulate the regeneration of the skin. The needles successfully promote skin healing and activate collagen production beneath the dermis.
A microneedling treatment can usually be completed in thirty minutes to an hour. You will be kept comfortable with a topical numbing cream, which is administered to the skin thirty minutes before the procedure begins.
Thankfully, there is only a short recovery downtime after a microneedling treatment. While some patients prefer to take time off for a day or two until the redness diminishes, many decide to return to their daily activities after receiving microneedling.
Why Is Microneedling So Effective?
Microneedling is capable of completely resurfacing the patient’s skin. This is because the controlled administration of the needles penetrates to the depth of the dermis responsible for collagen production. An unfortunate side effect of aging is the slowing of this collagen production, which leads to the loss of skin elasticity and the formation of wrinkles. The needles successfully reach the level of the dermis where old proteins have blocked the body’s healthy communication with the collagen-producing components of the skin. The needles “clean up” the lower dermis and re-activate the signals which tell the body to produce collagen again. The needle’s piercing the skin additionally communicates the need to heal the area.
Due to the increased collagen and signaled healing, the skin in the treated area thickens. This helps to increase the overall volume in the skin. Your pores will shrink, scars and stretch marks will heal, and your skin tone will become more even. Microneedling is also capable of plumping and smoothing areas of your skin which have developed wrinkles, which diminishes the appearance of these signs of aging.
Microneedling does more than resurface your skin: it restores its healthy function.
The surface healing promoted by the needles will continue to improve, thanks to the collagen production that the needles re-awaken within your dermis. While it may take a few months to reach the surface, your stimulated collagen will continue to heal the skin during this time. In fact, your collagen production will remain active for months after a microneedling session. Patients who complete at least three microneedling treatments see particularly long-term results from their renewed collagen production.

Why Choose Microneedling?
You may have heard about other skin revitalizing treatments, such as laser resurfacing, or dermal fillers. These may be able to address specific skin issues but tend to have a smaller pool of candidates than microneedling.
The difference between microneedling and laser resurfacing is the exposure of the skin to heat. Laser resurfacing breaks down pigment and scarring with targeted heat. Microneedling does not apply heat to patient’s skin.
Another difference between a microneedling and laser treatment is the fact that a laser treatment senses pigment, which unfortunately limits the number of candidates who can receive the full benefit of laser resurfacing. Microneedling with the SkinPen is effective and safe for use on all skin types.
Any facial redness that you experience after your microneedling will subside within two days. A laser treatment can leave the skin looking red and irritated for a longer period of time.
Dermal fillers are injections which add volume to targeted areas of the patient’s face. While this can be an effective way of restoring fullness, smoothing wrinkles, and jump-starting the health of the skin, the results are often short-term.
Even if dermal fillers contain naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid or collagen, they can run the risk of looking unnatural. If your skin is ready for a dermal filler, you will want an experienced health practitioner like Dr. Silvia Rotemberg overseeing your injections. The volumization achieved with microneedling, alternatively, can be longer-lasting and is a result of your own body’s natural function.
A microneedling treatment can benefit all skin types and is capable of addressing an impressive amount of skin issues.
Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling, aka Collagen Induction Therapy, is capable of improving more than the appearance of facial skin. It is also a reliable solution for scarring, stretch marks, and signs of aging in the:
Microneedling is safe and effective for all skin tones. Ideal candidates for microneedling are:
- Interested in rejuvenating and resurfacing their skin, but do not want to turn to surgery or harsher procedures like laser treatment or a chemical peel, or augment their body with Botox or a dermal filler.
- Not experiencing active acne or cold sores. Microneedling can exacerbate certain skin conditions, like rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis.
- Open to the results of a skin rejuvenating treatment.
If you are a man or a woman who has large pores, scars, stretch marks, pigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin, or a general dullness in your skin, microneedling can address these concerns, while additionally improving the overall volume and health of the skin.
If you are on blood thinners or are diabetic, you should consult with Dr. Silvia Rotemberg about your candidacy for microneedling.
